As Toronto and surrounding communities continued to brace for minus double digit temperatures and arctic wind-chills during the past several months, concern for the well-being of the homeless and those at risk of being homeless was on the rise. In response to a growing need for life saving necessities to help those less fortunate survive winter on the streets, Project Winter Survival distributed 3000 Winter Survival Kits through approximately 200 homeless shelters, social service agencies and outreach providers, from their headquarters at The Bargains Group on Caledonia Road. Now in its 15th year, Project Winter Survival is an Engage and Change initiative committed to helping those less fortunate endure the hardships of winter by providing necessities for the needy.
